We talked about the different ways we show patriotism in our own families. Students illustrated this. Illustrations are an important part of story telling. Illustrations are not just about working on our fine motor skills but also about the thought process involved in adding details.
Before reading our 4th of July story we previewed some important vocabulary words by acting them out.
Students wrote about how their family celebrates the 4th of July. Although many of celebrate in the same ways it was also fun to see how others celebrate.
La flor es más alto que el trebol.
El trebol es más bajo que la flor.
El palo es iqual que la linea.
La roca es más corto que la linea.
La planta es más largo que la linea.
Social Studies & Science
Each day this week we read a Dr. Seuss book and did a special activity in honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday and Read Across America. We read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, There’s a Wocket in My Pocket, ABC book and The Sleep Book. The students created their own Green Eggs and Ham class book and There’s a Wocket in My Pocket. These books will take turns going home overnight with each student and are to be returned the following school day. Enjoy!
In Kindergarten art we talked about the month of March, the seasons of winter and spring, and the saying “March comes in like a lion.” We looked at Ed Emberley’s book about drawing animals, and the students made a stepbystep crayon drawing of a lion’s head, using basic shapes. The students did a great job creating these fun lions!
This week we learned several new songs from the core curriculum, including The Teddy Bears’ Picnic, Kookaburra, You are my Sunshine and I Know an Old Lady.
